Do You Have a Personalized Homepage?

By Butterboom Writers  /  July 3, 2007

Instead of surfing, have the web brought to you.


We did an unscientific poll of people in Lan Kwai Fong on Saturday night to see how many people had personalized homepages. Surprisingly many of the people we asked did, but the ones that didn;t, didn;t even know what it was.

Instead of surfing your bookmarks you can have a Personailzed Homepage that brings your web to you all on one page, and this is what we call your personilaed Homepage. Many people in Hong Kong use My Yahoo since they use alot of the services but there are other free services out there and this site reviews 14 different offerings you should check out.

We use NetVibes because we can easily drag and drop sections and create page that checks all our email accounts, the weather, the news from 10 different websites and has sticky notes, photos, auctions etc. and we can access this from any computer by logging in.‘s RSS feed can be sent into this personalized page so that at a glance you can see what new stories we have posted without having to specifically come to the site everyday.

Its the web the way you want it, you customize it and you tell it what you want to see and what is important to you. A great way for people on the go and want a snapshot of what is going on with their morning coffee. The easiest analogy is that you are basically creating your own front page of a newspaper with the topics that you are most interested in. Don’t be left behind, check out the reviews and choose the one that’s best for you.
